It is therefore a privileged means of transmitting knowledge. In this book you will find masters of excellent quality and an unquestionable course. More importantly, their work is extremely relevant as the themes focus on current issues. They do it with a critical eye and place their finger right in the wound – denouncing a series of problems of the modern world. For this reason, their art has much more to communicate, raising questions that make us think and reflect. Making use of imagery that produces visual thinking and creating mental images with enormous beauty. Gathered here are authors who play a fundamental role in the characterization and contextualization of the time in which we live in. Consequently, the work of art that appears in this book is not only a product of aesthetic or decorative value, but essentially a form of communication or rather, the transmission of new ideas in a unique and creative way”.
